"It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop." ~Confucius

I am 46 years old and have been struggling with weight since I was about 21.  My pregnancy at age 27 is when hypertension set in and has never been back to "normal" since.  I managed without medication until about 5 years ago and the hypertension keeps gradually increasing.  I struggle with losing weight and keeping it off.  I am reaching out to try to improve my quality of life. My Primary Care Physician and I both feel that bariatric surgery may very well help me.  So here I am working through the requirements outlined by my insurance company.  I have a BMI of 37.8 with *refractory hypertension.  (*resisting ordinary methods of treatment)
